1995-W Silver Eagle Proof – The Holy Grail of Silver Eagles!
In the 30-plus years of the Silver Eagle series, one coin stands out as the most prized among collectors: the 1995-W Silver Eagle Proof. Struck with frosted devices and mirror-like fields, its visage is incredibly attractive to the eye – but that’s not the main reason for its coveted status. That honor belongs to its rarity.

Only 30,125 sets were sold. That’s more than thirteen times more scarce than the standard 1995 Silver Eagles released from the Philadelphia Mint, which struck a total of 407,822 coins. It proved to be quite fortuitous for those lucky few who purchased the 10th Anniversary Set as the 1995-W Silver Eagle Proof from it has emerged as the “King of the Silver Eagles.”

All Customers had to do to receive the coin was indicate on the order form that they wanted to receive it. Today, nearly a quarter of a century later, that “free” coin has surpassed the combined value of all the gold coins in the set!
